Senator JV Ejercito has questioned whether China is a true friend of the Philippines after its vessel collided with a local fishing boat and abandoned the fishermen near Recto Bank.

“Pinalubog na ang barko, iniwan pa ang crew members sa dagat. Kaibigan ba talaga ang China? “ Ejercito tweeted.

“Kaya gusto ko sila sikuhin kapag sumisingit sa mga linya!” he added.

A Chinese fishing vessel reported collided with Filipino boat near Recto Bank, forcing it to sink. The foreign ship fled the scene and left the 22 crew in the water.

A Vietnamese fishing vessel was fortunately in the vicinity, rescuing all 22 fishermen and bringing them to safety.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has denounced the incident and called for an investigation.
